Compared to the other heroes of faith mentioned in this chapter we know so little about Enoch he did not utter any prophecy or stand before any of the Israelite Kings or do any 'mighty deeds.' Yet the spirit of God seems fit to include his...

Discipleship and working Faith
Published
God will not let me move on from Exodus 13 & 14 and so here I am for the Holy Spirit has still more truth to extract from this account of the Children of Israel leaving Egypt. Mind you I was prepared to move on for the logical move would be to...
The Disciple s growth unto Holiness

I wish to base this message on the account in Exodus 13 & 14 of the Children of Israel leaving Egypt and travelling to the Red sea. The story is familiar to those with the OT biblical stories that have been told from our 'mother's...
The Call of God to Teach.

The day of the Lord and his Sabbath Rest

my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. Hosea 4 This cry was uttered around 700 BC by Hosea, the first of the so called 'minor' prophets against the priests, who had been set aside by God to be watchmen over his people. The body of...
Gods Holy Word
Published
The Bible is the Word of God. To call the Bible by any other name is to deny God and the reality of our experience. Men may call the Bible a history of the Jewish nation and use it to trace the twelve tribes during the Diaspora. Men may view the Bible...
Hearing Gods voice in Scripture
Published
As I read the scriptures I have a tendency think within myself that I know the meaning here in this text for I have read this many times before and most likely due to my theological study pulled the text apart. I have heard many sermons on this...
Discipleship and the renewed Mind
Published
When the life of Christ is born into our hearts God calls us a new creation; this is sanctification. We are called to walk, by surrender, to present our bodies as living sacrifices. In this way we work out our salvation that was born into our hearts....
The Making of a Disciple of Christ
Published
Jesus said 'If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.' Mark 8 I believe that disciples are made not born for Jesus constantly laid down the requirements for those who would follow him. In all the...
The terrible misunderstanding of Discipleship
Published
There is a difference like chalk and cheese between being saved and being a disciple of Jesus. Many believers today cannot see the difference for the term discipleship has been altered from the biblical understanding presented by Jesus and Paul. Many...
The secret of the perfect life.
Published
The conversation that Jesus had with the person known as the 'rich young ruler' which is recorded in all synoptic gospels is worthy of a deeper inspection. . Often these conversations contain much truth that we can over look as we focus on the...

Regeneration rebuilding the temple within

By the fall recorded in Genesis 3 mankind fell not only from grace and Gods presence but into disunity within himself. By the fall we mean that not only was mankind out of harmony with God but he was out of harmony within himself. Before the fall Adam...
Mankind s Making, Unmaking and Repair

In Genesis 1:27 we read 'So God createdmanin his own image,in the image of Godhe created him; male and femalehe created them.' This statement has important significance in our understanding of the term 'image of God' for it is my...
The nature of Sin

Gods spoken word defined the character of God in contrast to the Canaanite gods. Time and time again Jehovah reminded the children of Israel that the idols of their enemies are made of wood and stone and cannot speak or move. The OT is full of images...
